Ever wonder what a typical day is like for a DJ? Barcelona based DJ and producer, Stiv Hey’s gigs recently took him from Bucharest to Moldova, so we tagged along for a day on the road to get to know him better…
Born and raised in Milan, Stiv Hey is one of the next generation of techno producers to watch. With a trademark futuristic sound which has seen him signed Dubfire’s SCI+TEC imprint, ladies and gentlemen make way for one of the future stars of the international techno scene.
This summer, techno’s ascending leader, Stiv Hey, released three gripping tracks for his ‘Interference’ EP on Loose Records. Characterized by hexing rhythms and villainous basslines, Hey’s sound is best described as tantalizing, futuristic techno. Additionally landing himself on Dubfire’s SCI+TEC label, Hey has received support from such torchbearers as Richie Hawtin, Marco Carola, and Adam Beyer. Now, Hey debuts a refined, dark, and groovy triple-threat in the release of his first solo EP.
My new “Interference” EP is delivering a new sound I was working on for a long time; it’s more punchy and melodic. All the tracks have a strong energy that results in a great impact on the dance floor.” – Stiv Hey
Interference (Original Mix) –, takes listeners through a wormhole of twisting techno elements. Its straightforward tempo underscores layers of echoing detail, which alternate and combine to create a single harmonious track.
Transitions (Original Mix) –, immediately takes off with a rolling bassline and mesmerizing rhythm. Synths circulate and add further depth to the record, resulting in an overall deep-seated effect.
Descent (Original Mix) –, mixes low-pitched melodies and sharp synths to create a menacing, ticking-time-bomb rhythm. The track progresses in waves of energy, step-by-step descending into completion.
